The main character does not succeed, he becomes part of the government in the end.

And there's another book ruined for me.

First my mom ruins the ending of Othello, now this ******* guy goes and kills my desire to read 1984.
User avatar #58 to #52 - handofdestiny (02/05/2013) [-]

The funny thing what people who draw this kind of stuff don't really think about is: What is they are the ones who actually got it wrong? What if it says "2x2=4" everywhere and they are the ones with the "2x2=5" flag? And they think they are the victim of some large scale government conspiracy to hide the truth, and for some reason the vast majority of the people is stupid, while they are the ones who are magically able to rise above this conspiracy and other people's stupidity.

I am just always a bit wary of people who think they can see something that the vast majority of people can't see. They are either geniuses or they are completely crazy.

Was waiting for someone to say this so hard.
Way too many people nowadays who can´t admit that they could be wrong about something. No no it must be a conspiracy to hide the truth.

In a realistic version of this picture 4 and 5 would be swapped places.

If someone protest about something, it obviously means that their opinion is correct.

Different book,
Same idea.

I think this is actually supposed to be about 1984 by Orson Wells. 2+2=5 was a popular theme in that book
#115 to #76 - krumpetking (02/05/2013) [-]
... that's why he said "different book, same idea".

You really think the government needs to oppress us? We do a damn fine job of doing that ourselves and we keep getting better. Look around you ya twat! You have hundreds of thousands of books, you have the internet, movies, music ext... You can teach yourself virtually anything you want from science to the beliefs of all religions and the beliefs of every ideology that has existed in massive amounts of completely uncensored detail. And the apparent evil "big brother" government doesn't give two ***** about what kind of knowledge you possess nor what you say about them. I could go into a crowded mall and start preaching how the government is real a big evil totalitarian secret police type deal and do you think they would care? You have more freedom than you could ever hope for and more than mankind can even handle and you still bitch about "ZOMG! Teh govr iz opress us! Viva la revolution!" The only thing that's oppressing you is yourself because you spend way to much time bitching about how you won't be happy until the president himself works as a professional ass-wiper to everyone rather than spending that time and energy on something productive.

Great, now I get to listen to every ******* hippy brat and anarchist scumbag bitch at me about how "I know nothing about society" or how I've become brainwashed by the government.

Also, on a side note, ******* loved that book.
#192 to #134 - anon (02/05/2013) [-]
i thought this content would be aimed more at oppression in places like Egypt and Libya and China not western society
User avatar #211 to #134 - cocorosie (02/05/2013) [-]
So because someone is an anarchist or a hippy or something else you don't agree with, then they're dumber than you? Look around yourself. We do oppress ourselves, yes. But the governments of the world still do oppress their people too. In the United States our education system is horrifically underfunded, which does take the tools of knowledge out of our hands. The government has always tried to give off the illusion of freedom, like publicly denouncing the government. But what does denouncing the government change? It makes you look like a psycho and no one will listen to you. So you had no effect on anyone, which means the government has no reason to stop that. More worrying is the fact that people are so content with corporations feeding them endless products and the government is there to make sure you do that. We live in an era of blind bliss, where we don't care who has their hands in our pockets. We are oppressed, by our own minds and those who are sworn to watch over us.

Don't want to buy products from big corperations? Don't ******* buy them, that simple, no one is forcing you to do so. This is a problem of people being cheap and greedy, it's not like the government is saying "buy these products or we'll take you to room 101"

And yes the US education system is **** , all that means is you have to stop being a lazy **** and take time to self educate yourself. That or pay to get into a good school, there's hundreds of private schools and universities in the US, Canada, ext... If the government truly wanted people to keep citizens uneducated do you honestly believe they would allow such institutes to exist?

Denouncing the government on the street will make you look like a psycho? It will if you stand on a soap box screaming random **** into a megaphone. If you actually set up a booth and have plenty of proven facts and counter arguments to back up your theories and ideals so you appear more like a rational human being than a half-baked conspiracist.
User avatar #219 to #218 - cocorosie (02/05/2013) [-]
But the plight of the capitalist system forces us to buy these products. If we don't, we have to go without necessities or drive ourselves into poverty buying homemade products.

The education is **** , and many kids are incapable of teaching themselves. They don't know enough to teach themselves and are content with ignorance. The future is being oppressed, many kids don't seek higher education because the government makes it so hard to attain. Kids are taught that they live in the backwoods, or the ghetto, or anywhere like that and that they can't escape that.

Even reasonable facts are looked upon with scorn. If you had reasonable evidence that 9\11 wasn't entirely what it was made out to be, you would be shunned. Because to question the word of the government is insane, or paranoid. The government and corporations that lobby in the government don't give a **** about you, its all money.

Maybe the government isn't what oppresses us in its entirety. It's society as a whole, we are taught that we are what we were born as and we can't change our fate. Poor will forever be poor unless you're willing to crush people around you. We perpetuate what our government wants. Our minds are oppressed. Oppression isn't an outright thing, it's a subtle thing that manifests in society.

You work to buy the necessities you need, in a socialist system it's essentially the same except you work to pay the taxes to get the necessities you need. It doesn't matter what system you live in, you must work to live (except anarchy I suppose in a way you do have to work to commit cannibalism).

The only thing you need to learn is how to read and you could become the smartest man on earth, men who never even went to school managed to become amazing things. The only thing holding them back are what they believe to be their own limitations and that my friend is completely dictated by your own view of yourself.

And I suppose they are, but your entitled to them completely and no one can (although some surely will attempt to) stop you or change your mind. The thoughts of a man are completely his own and the government does nothing to change your mind or get rid of you.

You said the magic word twice, "society," the government isn't the massive oppressive being we think it is, the honour belong completely to the majority. Perhaps this does assist the government in keeping the people in check, I won't deny the government is completely pure and doesn't want some small advantage, but in reality we could completely get rid of the government and almost nothing would change due to human nature. I mean there might be a bit more cannibalism and rape here and there but it still be just as oppressive.

The biggest reason I'm pissed is all those "We want to control the internet and monitor everything you do" bills.

In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it. Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality, was tacitly denied by their philosophy. The heresy of heresies was common sense. And what was terrifying was not that they would kill you for thinking otherwise, but that they might be right. For, after all, how do we know that two and two make four? Or that the force of gravity works? Or that the past is unchangeable? If both the past and the external world exist only in the mind, and if the mind itself is controllable—what then?

Think for yourselves everyone, but don't forget that religion is stupid, Apple sucks, Republicans are evil, Americans are fat and lazy, and to think for yourselves.

I just want to make one change. replace "Republicans" with "Politicians" and we're all good.

... seriously, I've just suffered your last few posts while going thru latest uploads.

I let it go for the first few, but at this picture I need to point out that you are the most psudo-intellectual, self-important and pretentious cunt I have ever seen on here.

This is going to be a really hard reality for you to hear (and i'm sure you'll reject it) but If stuff like these pics strike genulnely strike you as deep and meaningful, you're not nearly as smart as you clearly like to think you are.
User avatar #16 to #1 - WakaTakaBang (02/04/2013) [-]
Alright, settle down champ. It's just a reference to Orwell so move along.
User avatar #3 to #1 - handofdestiny (02/04/2013) [-]
well I just like the picture, that's pretty much it.. nothing deep here.. I'm sorry if you took it like I want to be something I really am not.. I didn't know people here can't just post something interesting/funny/whatever without standing 100% behind the content.. e.g. when I don't find something that much funny, but I think other people will like it much more than I do, I like to share it and see their reactions.. and it's not that I find it hilarious.. have a nice day

dude dont feel bad. i got hounded by some random when i posted something i thought other people might like.
#18 to #6 - omgusogay (02/04/2013) [-]
I think its a bit of an overreaction to say 'hounded' here, even as a comparison. Its one comment. Its not like I went thru all his posts leaving comments or something weird like that.
I didn't even thumb it down, if your interested. Just exercised (cathartic) right of reply.
#168 to #3 - omgusogay (02/05/2013) [-]
wow...really? thumbed down an appology....

#19 to #3 - omgusogay (02/04/2013) [-]
Well fair enough. Thanks for taking the time to respond. Guess its an agree to disagree thing.
By the way, although I stand by the message generally, sorry I called you a cunt. I was in a bad mood when I wrote it and that was unwarranted
